I also carry a spare prop at all times and glad I do. Was on cedar creek last year and the wind was terrible as usual and just came out of a cove and my prop spun out. Was lucky enough to troll back in the cove to replace the prop and thank god for that because with the waves and wind I don't think I could have made it a cross the lake on the trolling motor only, so yes I carry a spare. Sorry for the long rant. Larry.

If I am driving any distance to fish I carry an extra trolling motor. A lot of things can go bad and you can still fish, If the trolling motor goes bad you are loading it up.

I used to carry one, I may be wrong but I don.t think you can spin the hub on the prop that I am running, I know I have spun a couple of Yamaha props but these Mercury props like the Tempest and the Fury I have never had a problem.

I always carry a spare beater. The one time I needed one and didn't have it convinced me.

I assume he meant the prop broke free from the hub. I carry a spare prop and a spare hub. You can get a cheap aluminum prop for around $150, it won't be a real good prop but it'll get you across the lake if needed. I started carrying one after a friend of mine threw a blade off his stainless prop and he didn't even hit anything as he was running across Amistad in 80 foot of water. You never know when something may happen so it's smart to carry a spare.
